Huawei Mate X: A Foldable 5G Phone You Probably Can't Buy

  • Foldable phones are all the rage as Samsung leads the way with the Galaxy Fold

"To support the hyperconnected 5G period, Huawei Consumer BG remains committed to the all-scenario smart ecosystem strategy". It's only been a couple of days since Samsung announced its own foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold - generating a lot of talk and hype around the new form-factor.

Announced at a pre-MWC event in Barcelona, Huawei claims the Mate X is the fastest foldable 5G phone. The the foldable screen of the Huawei Mate X is folded around the outside of the device, with the help of a patented hinge with over 100 components the company said.

The Galaxy S10e comes in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, while the Galaxy S10 is available in an 8GB RAM model only. When folded, you can use the 6.6-inch front display and on the back you will have 6.38-inch display.

When folded out the screen measures at eight inches with 2480 x 2000 resolution and has a thickness of 5.4mm.

Not to be ignored, it also features cameras that are powered by Leica technology. As the name suggests the grip is designed for you to keep hold of the Mate X more easily when it's in tablet mode, as well as housing a bunch of the hardware. That lets them see exactly what they are going to look like before a picture is taken. I don't know what you'd use the smaller back screen for outside of snapping a selfie, but I guess it's nice to have the option. The rear display is used as a viewfinder to click selfies using the primary camera. To top it off for all the "too thick" naysayers out there, Huawei has promised that the phone won't be. "The new device has nothing to envy to Samsung's latest Galaxy Fold announcement". It's calling it the 'World's Fastest Foldable 5G Phone'. The other "half" of the phone is a 6.6-inch screen, which expands to the full "tablet" mode with limited latency as the device unfolds.

When folded, the thinner side of the Mate X tucks in nicely against the spine.

The ostensible advertisement also touts the Mate X as a 5G device.

Huawei has also unveiled three new MateBook laptops with touchscreen displays.

Alongside the chip, Huawei has added its own Balong 5000 5G modem to allow maximum performance by pairing it with 7nm chips. Further below you'll find a number of screenshots where he specifically compared their new Mate X to the iPhone XS Max or Samsung's new Galaxy Fold. Huawei boasts that you'll be able to charge your foldable device from 0 to 85 percent within 30 minutes using this technology.

With so many engineering obstacles and high manufacturing costs - the Mate X will cost €2,299 (£1,997), for example - phone makers will want to make sure their products sell.

From a marketing standpoint, this is one of the better hands-on videos we have seen from a company.
